You’ve been working on your final presentation since Unit 2 and the time has come to submit your final set of PowerPoint slides to a group of hypothetical investors! In order to make the best decisions, investors need data and detailed information, so this is where you need to do some research to back up your presentation. This is an advanced persuasion technique!
In addition to discussing the actual product or service you are presenting, It is recommended that you do not ignore the following:
- What are the details of the target market (how big is the market(s) (in estimated dollar volume or number of potential customers),
- What are your strategies to deal with any existing competition?
- What are your plans for future trends in the marketplace?
***** Did you remember to include your voice annotation and supporting note in the Notes section of each slide? *****
These are items that investors will be looking for and you need to put this information in the Notes section of each slide. Don’t worry about having too much information!
